Abstract and Keywords

Over the past two decades, international development has seen a rise in global partnerships, due, inter alia, to cross-border issues requiring administrative coordination, and to the idea that pooled resources and leveraging partner strengths will lead to the best development results. This trend supports a strategic political context that calls for pooling knowledge, and moving beyond donor-specific silos. This chapter analyses key partnerships, including the Cities’ Alliance, Climate Investment Fund, Consultative Group to Assist the Poor, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Vaccine Alliance, Global Environment Facility, Global Fund, and Global Partnership for Education. It examines how partnerships are responding to needs in the market that other donors have failed to respond to, how well they are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, and to what extent they are crowding in more funding and knowledge to solve problems, while enhancing the participation of country partners.

Keywords: accountability, development, governance, participation, partnership
